ESM Source Enhancements

Training: November 8, 2021

Production: November 19, 2021

 

New Section Type: Files

A designated section type to allow event facilitators to specify what documents and files are required from suppliers for an event is available in ESM Source. With the File sections, event facilitators can provide detailed descriptions and instructions about the files and documents needed from suppliers in a centralized place. Suppliers will be able to easily identify if they have attached all the required files and documents in their responses.

Once suppliers select the files they would like to submit as part of their responses, they click the Update button to upload. The files that are successfully attached will have a green checkmark in front of the file name.

Before evaluation starts, Evaluate Set Up Users can assign reviewers and configure Supplier Visibility to the File section like all other section types.

Once the event is closed for responses (ie. pass the due date), assigned reviewer(s) can download and review suppliers’ uploaded files and documents in the File section(s).

Extended Previous Unit Price Column

 

An extended column is available for the Line Item Bid sections for the Previous Unit Price column. This is a calculated column that shows the previous total cost of an item in a line item bid table by multiplying Quantity and Previous Unit Price.

The Requirement page under the Mange Tab, Approve Tab, and the Request Tab have also been updated with the new extended column.

Advanced Search Improvements

 

We renamed ‘Event Not Awarded’ to ‘No Award’ in the Status dropdown menu of the Advance Search to keep consistency with the status label used elsewhere in the ESM Source application.
